RockShox Pike RCT3 27.5" / 650B Fork

Call the Pike RCT3 the comeback kid! We are excited to be graced by the Pike once again and you should be too. After a short hiatus, the Pike returns to the RockShox lineup as a definitive trail fork. The resurrection of the Pike features up to 160mm of travel from the 35mm diameter upper legs, and a tapered steerer with a 15mm thru-axle. The seals have been designed to lessen breakaway friction, moving to a single lip seal while slotted bushings permit oil to circulate to keep things lubricated. The Pike will also highlight the new Charger Damper system, which is also seen on the Vivid Air R2C downhill shock, assuring no compromise in bump performance when you’re bombing downhill. The new sealed cartridge utilizes an extruded bladder filled with 3wt oil which expands to contain oil displaced by the fork as it moves through the travel. The Maxle Lite is a brilliant 15mm thru axle system that provides maximum stiffness, while keeping it lightweight and it requires no tools for removal. The Power Bulge feature reinforces the lower leg to allow for an oversized bushing, enhancing stiffness and durability. Last but not least, the Pike RCT3 attributes RockShox’s Rapid Recovery technology allowing the shocks to recover quicker between consecutive bumps, making the wheel track the ground with greater precision. If the Pike RCT3 doesn’t make for a smoother, more manageable ride, we don’t what will. It’s good to have you back Pike!

      Comments about Rockshox Pike RCT3 27.5"/650B Fork 2014:

      This fork is nothing short of amazing. It will blow your MIND! I've ridden Fox forks for years and finally bought a Pike. My-oh-my what a difference. With this fork, I want to ride the bike harder, hit bigger jumps, carve berms, and plow over anything in my way. I have much more fun when riding the pike. You can also use the full travel without it ramping up to aggressively. You can have a plush trail fork without blowing through your travel off big drops. Heavier riders may need a bottomless token, but I weigh 150 geared up and haven't needed one.

      Also...I just finished my first oil change and it took less than an hour. Easy as pie and now its more plush than ever. On my first rebuild, there was not much oil in the lowers. I would recommend a quick oil swap after a dozen rides.

          My Pivot Mach 6 was ordered with Fox 34 CTD. I was not able to make the front work. My ride weight is about 200 lbs. I gave up on the fox and replaced with Pike RCT3. I can ride with less pressure than recommended with low speed compression damping dialed in. The fork stays in the proper travel range during down hill braking over bumps. My hands no longer feel like I'm holding onto a jack hammer going down hill.

            So much good stuff has been written about this fork... and it's all true! Bought it to replace my 150mm Fox 34 Talas, and it certainly has given my Bronson C a more "free ride" feel. Once set up properly, the fork feels bottomless and plush, but still great re small bump compliance. At 6'5, 230lbs, I'm pushing my XL frame pretty hard, and the stiffness of this fork definitely gives additional confidence.
